Sridevi’s sudden demise was a complete shocker for the entire nation. From film industry to common people, every Sridevi fan mourned her death. While many paid condolences to her family, there were few who wanted to share more moments with her. One such filmmaker is Hansal Mehta, who wanted to approach the late actress for a movie. Few days after her death, Mehta took to Twitter to share his grief, with the post: “There will never be another Sridevi. I was about to approach her for a film. That film will now be dedicated to her. If it finds an actor.”

But now, he wants to approach Vidya Balan to play the lead role in Sridevi’s biopic.

Prodded about the project, Mehta told IANS: “I will always regret that I didn’t approach her and could not make a movie with her. But I will make a film on her.”

Mehta got a little introspective as he got talking about the project, divulging that the film may just be based on a book. But he refused to give out any more information.

“It will be made,” he assured, adding: “There are actors (who I have in my mind). I might approach Vidya Balan. I will make the film,” he reiterated emphatically.

At the moment, Mehta is waiting for a release of his upcoming film, Omerta, which is ready from 2016 and has made rounds of several international film festivals. Presented by Swiss Entertainment and Karma Media, and produced by Nahid Khan, the film stars Rajkummar Rao and it is scheduled to hit the screens on April 20.
